Columbus Plaza High-Rise Facade Repairs
The Habitat Company originally retained AltusWorks in 2006 to evaluate the building facades of Columbus Plaza, a 48-story post-tension concrete residential high-rise building designed by Fujikawa Johnson & Associates.
Up until and including 2018, AltusWorks has provided ongoing services comprised of performing Critical Examinations and preparing Ongoing Reports of the exterior walls to meet City of Chicago Facade Ordinance requirements. From these evaluations, two major facade restoration programs were undertaken totaling $4.0M.
AltusWorks also responded to a variety of related conditions—water infiltration at the rooftop terraces, structural failures due to thermal movement, fenestration and air conditioning unit repairs, —by identifying the source of the problem and designing sound repair solutions.
